Here are some of the things you may wish to consider when making an investment:
The level of risk will ultimately dictate the size of the return. How much risk are you prepared and able to take? Are you investing directly into an asset or the performance of a company?
Some investments are income generating, paying dividends monthly or quarterly, giving investors an opportunity to reinvest or subsidise their living costs. When you’re deciding where to invest, start by looking at how much you are currently receiving in interest and dividends from your investments.
Opposite to income, this is where the investment grows in value, fuelled by demand in the market or by negotiating below market value. Capital growth figures can be compared to long-term investments through banks, pensions, and SIPPs.
This is a very important part of investing and for most is the deciding factor. On paper, any investment can look good, but the reality is unless there is a strong exit strategy the returns may never be realised in the desired timescale.
Your first steps to investing
- Investigate the market and decide whether you can see the opportunity for investment. Ask other investors whether it’s working for them and how much growth they’ve seen since they invested.
- Higher returns can normally be found in new investment vehicles that are rapidly growing, or where new advances have been made, but this sometimes requires knowledge of a certain industry. By staying open-minded in the area of investment you will find opportunities previously overlooked.
- From speaking to other investors, and understanding how your money is currently working for you, you can start to narrow down the type of investment and decide between short, long, or medium-term, and whether you want capital growth or income generating returns.
- Finally, start looking at the companies you would like to deal with. Have they conducted their own due-diligence into the investment? What level of service do they offer? Do they have a range of investments to choose from?
